I've got new Advan GT Premiums inbound, and figure that they'll never be cleaner than new, so now is the time to protect them with some sort of sealant or ceramic coating or whatever.

So, that being the case- what should I use?

I got quoted $250 to do them in ceramic pro. I am considering that option.

Ceramic Pro would be the best you can get but its expensive. Ive used Poor Boys Wheel Sealant as a cheaper option with about 2 coats and its worked well.

Gtechniq Wheel Armor. Do two coats for even coverage. Make sure you clean the wheel surface with a mix of distilled water and isopropyl alcohol (mix in a bottle, spray it down, and wipe with a clean micro fiber). Then apply the coating .. make sure you get ever inch of the wheel that isn't covered by the tires.

when you eventually get to washing the wheels, be amazed as the dirt and brake dust come clean off.

I use Poorboys wheel sealant as well, and have had very good results. It is not a "long term" sealant like some of the ceramics are, and should be applied in similar intervals to waxing/sealing your paint.

Since you got the new one...you should just apply it by yourself..it is super easy.

The person who gave you $250 quote should be slapped with your new Advan GT

um $250 sounds about right honestly. A bottle of ceramic pro is $250 alone.

None of the glass coating bottles are more than $100...

Just get any decent coatings for wheels such as Gtecnique wheel coating, Carpro Ceramic Quartz, Opti coat...they are less than $60 bottle, and you won't even use 1/4 of that bottle to do your 4 wheels. Extremely easy to apply...

Most of them last more than 2 years...you can't even tell the difference for different products..also

Just wondering if anyone has tried Rainx on their wheels?

I wonder if this can be applied to the exhaust tips. Those accumulate carbon build up just by driving down the highway and back, ha-ha. As for the wheels, I'd like something that would make it easier to clean the brake dust off. I usually spray a wheel cleaner on, let it soak for the recommended amount of time, rinse off, then wash with a separate sponge.

My GTR was done with a full paint correction and OptiCoat Pro. I also had my Advan GT Premiums coated with it at the same time. Works very good. Water literally falls off the paint and wheels.

There are many choices among coating selections. You can use glass coating on plastic, vinyl, chrome, and exhaust tips also

Had poor boys applied to my undercarriage and wheels today. Highline Auto Detailing north Houston did a fantastic job. Gtr has ceramic pro coating. Will be interesting to see which makes keeping clean easier.
